Coral’s Premier League managers’ Christmas list continues

| 24.12.2014

Coral are back with their second installment of the Premier League managers’ Christmas list, as we review who has been naughty and who has been nice!

Alan Pardew
Winning Manager of the Season would be ironic considering Newcastle fans were making ‘sack Pardew’ banners a couple of months ago!

Nigel Pearson
For refusing to apologise to Foxes fans, get him a copy of Dale Carnegie’s international best-seller, “How to win Friends and Influence people”.

Mauricio Pochettino
A new suit made to measure. He is often seen dressed down in his tracksuit. Go on Santa, push the boat out and make it a three-piece for Tottenham’s head coach.

Gus Poyet
Anti-depressants and a self-help book sent first class to Sunderland, after being quoted as saying “I want to do better and I want to feel better. I am not enjoying this.”

Harry Redknapp
At least a couple more mobile phones and a secretary for transfer deadline day. He is bound to be seen hanging out of the window of his Range Rover on his way into the QPR training ground talking to reporters.

Brendan Rodgers
Easy, another £100m to blow and £75m for Mario Balotelli. That isn’t a Christmas present, it’s a Christmas miracle. You’ll never walk alone, except through the Liverpool defence.

Louis van Gaal
If Santa Claus is passing over Old Trafford via Germany, maybe he’ll be kind enough to drop Bayern Munich’s centre back Mats Hummels off along the way!

Neil Warnock
Has said he “wants fresh faces at Crystal Palace”. Guess Who Santa?

Arsene Wenger
Some Velcro for his coat, and maybe a zip. At this time of the year, the Arsenal boss could do with being wrapped up properly. Having said that, if the Gunners fail to win over the Christmas period, he may as well hibernate.

Hertha to beat Hoffenheim
Schalke to beat Dortmund
Dusseldorf to win at Paderborn
